Ariana Grande has shared numerous touching images from the One Love Manchester tribute concert, as the BBC confirms that the concert broke iPlayer viewing records on Sunday night.

She was rocking a "One Love" jumper and ripped jeans to perform, but she also had a helluva big rock on her wedding finger, which got us thinking...

The outspoken and acerbic British journalist and TV personality had criticized her for leaving the United Kingdom immediately after a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured dozens more at her Manchester Arena show, instead of staying and visiting the wounded survivors.

The 23-year-old initially performed Be Alright and Break Free before a crowd of 50,000 adoring fans before returning with the Black Eyed Peas.

The U.S. pop singer's "One Last Time" (Republic) was downloaded 15,000 times in the 24 hours after Sunday's all-star concert at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, according to the Official Charts Company, and it's now challengingLuis Fonsi andDaddy Yankee's "Despacito" (Def Jam/RBMG/Republic/UMLE) for the weekly chart crown. "Thank you so much for your donations".

Earlier this week the former Oasis frontman held a special gig in the city with all proceeds going to the We Love Manchester fund for victims and their families.

Dicono di aver notato prima un uomo barcollante che sembrava ubriaco, ma che in realtà era pieno di sangue. Almeno 21 persone sono in condizioni gravi, secondo il servizio sanitario nazionale britannico.

But while some people praised the presenter for "doing the right thing", some followers weren't so convinced and took to social media to blast his apology.

Concert organizers moved quickly to stage the show following the May 22 attack to help victims and to stand up against violence.

The show went on even after two more attacks happened in London the night before the concert.

"Tonight's performances were nothing short of a blazing show of solidarity in the face of recent attacks dominating the news", concert publicist Outside Organization said about the June 4 concert.

Fans make a symbolic gesture at the One Love Manchester tribute.
